Law and Common Sense

Apparently, being a judge means not being able to think - instead, you just robotically take the claims of absurd claimants seriously:

A New York judge has issued a temporary restraining order restricting the transfer of Facebook Inc.'s assets, following a suit by a New York man who claims to own an 84% stake in the social-networking company.

Why do I say this is absurd? Well, the claimant says that he was contracted (in 2003) to deliver a website for Facebook - and hasn't done so in 7 years? Then there's this:

In 2009, New York's Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo accused Mr. Ceglia of defrauding customers of his wood-pellet fuel company, according to a news release from the Attorney General's office.

One wonders whether the judge who issued the restraining order can read, much less use Google....
